Fairmont State To State Moving Services

Fairmont Long Distance Moving Companies

Moving house presents a great opportunity for change. New cultures, cuisine, and languages are challenges that will make life interesting. To achieve your moving goals, you need to partner with the right moving company. If you're preparing to move to or from Fairmont, your best option is to hire a Minnesota based mover. We offer top-of-the-range moving services including vehicle relocation.

Top moving tips

  • Take care of hazardous materials. Movers won't transport any items that are listed as hazardous. Ask them to provide you a list of those items so that you don’t pack them. You can opt to give them away or safely dispose of them.
  • Pack smart. Use the big boxes for lighter items such as beddings and the small boxes for books. It's easier to handle small boxes with heavy items compared to large boxes. When packing, start with the rooms that are less frequently used.
  • Fill any spaces with clothes or old newspaper to keep the items in the boxes from shifting when being moved. This also prevents the items from breaking or getting damaged.
  • Make sure everything fits perfectly into a box before sealing it with tape. Label the boxes correctly on both sides and the top so that you can easily identify them from any direction.

A-1 Auto Transport can help you move your household goods nationwide. Call 888-509-3213 to get a free, no obligation to buy price quote on interstate moving services.

Reasons to hire a professional moving company

  • They have the appropriate equipment: Proper handling of heavy items requires special equipment. By hiring a professional mover, you get to be served by trained personnel who know the techniques to lift and carry the items through any space. They use hoisting straps, heavy duty blankets, and dollies to safely move your items from one point to another.
  • Financial control: When moving on your own, you may fail to consider some aspects of the move which can lead to overspending. On the other hand, professional movers use a predetermined system to calculate your moving cost. Everything is captured in one place and you only pay a fixed amount for the journey.
  • Insurance cover: When moving, anything can happen along the way. You want to be prepared for such unpredictable events. Hiring an insured mover is a sure way to safeguard your belongings. The movers are accountable for your move and will be held liable for any damages to your items. This means you'll be compensated up to the value of your insurance policy.
  • Packing services: Packing can be costly, tiring and time-consuming. When you hire a professional mover, they come with the necessary supplies including boxes and quality wrapping materials. They have the skills to pack fast and efficiently. This saves you time and money of hassling for packing materials. They will ensure your items are handled with care and delivered in good condition.

Tips to find the right moving company

Ask for recommendations from your friends, work colleagues and family members. At least one of them will have moved recently and willing to share their experience with the moving company. Also, ask the local real estate agents for advice on which companies to choose. Shortlist a few movers and check them out before making your decision.

Give preference to a moving company that’s a member of the Minnesota Transport Services Association. The association makes sure their members operate legally and follow the Professional Code of Ethics. This means that members of MTSA can be trusted to deliver high-quality services.

Find out the reputation of your moving company by visiting the Better Business Bureau website. Customers leave comments based on the performance of the company. Check the ratings of your mover and if there are any complaints lodged against it. Most importantly find out how the claims were resolved.

A reputable mover should issue you a copy of ‘Consumer Rights and Responsibilities’ booklet. It contains useful information of what to expect during a move and what to do in case of any misunderstandings with the moving company.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
